DIY Hibiscus Scrub

How to Use a Body Scrub
I like to use this in a warm shower. I get my skin nice warm and wet and then gently rub it all over my skin in circular motions. Circular is best. I do this with my dry brush too! Then simply rinse off and enjoy your beautiful skin!
As with anything new – I always do a skin test to make sure my skin is ok with whatever new product I’m going to put on it. I suggest that here as well. My skin is SUPER sensitive and simply LOVES this scrub!
